Trains to London Waterloo

London Waterloo Railway Station was first built in July 1848; the present structure was inaugurated in 1922. This striking building is a Grade II listed building and with just around 100 million passenger entries and exits per year, Waterloo is Britain's busiest railway station by passenger usage and one of the biggest in Europe. The station was originally used as Eurostar terminal between 1994 - 2007, until this was moved to St Pancras International station, although discussions have been started to re-establish this as a working terminal.
